Everyone has a story. Some stories may not impact our lives to any great degree. Others might alter our direction in unimaginable ways.
Our stories are not for comparison or competition but can be extremely impactful and relevant to us. Sharing these stories can bring others insight and revelation into their own lives. Helping us to feel a part of the bigger picture, more hopeful and purposeful on our daily walk.
In truth, we are never alone; God, who is all powerful is always on the journey with us. While Satan uses fear and lies trying to convince us that we are alone and abandoned, God says differently:
"Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
"Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand."
"Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you."
In faith, our fears, loneliness and insecurities can be given to God. We do this with faith in Him alone. Only He can drive away the lies, attacks, and discouragements that come our way. This helps secure safety in our storms.
This is a story of God's power, God's abundant love for us and how He fiercely clings to us unconditionally.
